“Home is” Craftsmen Impact Project

"Master Club" is jointly established by Yip's Chemical and its subsidiary Camel Paints to support the physical and mental health of painters, and help them lead colorful lives through various wellness programmes. Medical professionals and stretching instructors arrange group stretching classes or one-on-one stretching treatments according to the health condition of the painters in a way to help them prevent or relieve occupational pain.

Partners

"Home Academy" connects carpenters and colorists to pass on skills to the public, the disadvantaged and the family members of the painters of “Master Club”. It promotes "maker spirit" through the production of exquisite and practical wood crafts, improving the makers’ home environment.

"Community Exploration" programme empowers local students to learn through the process of "experiment, analysis, design, creation, practice and promotion".

Yip’s Chemical launched the “Mobile Eye Surgery Centre Donation Programme” (“the programme”) in collaboration with the Asian Foundation for the Prevention of Blindness and the China Disabled Persons’ Federation in 2010. The Group has donated several mobile eye surgery centres, equipped with advanced ophthalmological surgery equipment, to help restore the vision of cataract patients in remote parts of Mainland China. Since the launch of the programme, Yip’s Chemical and the Ip Chi Shing Charitable Foundation, which was founded by the Group’s Chairman, Mr Tony Ip, have donated 12 mobile eye surgery centres which provide cataract patients in rural areas across the Mainland with initial screening, surgery and follow-up consultations to Jiangsu, Shandong, Inner Mongolia, Yunnan, Heilongjiang, Shanxi, Hunan, Hebei, Guizhou, Henan, Jiangxi and Guangxi, bringing the total donation made thus far to over HK$30 million. We also arrange for employees and business partners to visit the provinces that benefit from the donation programme and to pay home visits to patients, and promote cataract prevention to the public.

Since the inception of the mobile eye surgery centre donation project in 2010, 12 mobile centres have been running in different provinces in Mainland China, and more than 150,000 cataract patients have undergone treatment.
